DIAMOND DACHSHUND RESCUE
January 27, 2012

In 2008, after losing my adopted dachshund, I decided to foster dachshunds for Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas. I discovered that this group is full of caring, talented, informed people of all ages working to rehabilitate dachshunds, educate people, and find loving homes for their dogs.

DDRTX has foster homes and volunteers all over Texas and does a home visit, a vet check, and a reference check on all potential adopters and volunteers. If an adopter finds that he can no longer keep the dog, regardless of how long the dog has been with them, DDRTX will take the dog back.

The group’s director, Christine McEntyre, is awesome. She leads her own trained teams to respond to animal emergencies and disasters and won the 2009 Pedigree Westminster Rescue Hero Award for her work with DDRTX and her rescue teams.

What keeps me going in the group is the feeling I get when the right dog and the right family come together. The last time I watched this happen, the dog “washed” the face of the potential adopter with his tongue. When I saw this I knew the dog was home (see photo of the dog). In my opinion, if you’re serious about adopting a dachshund, Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is the place to call.
